Abstract [en]

This case study is based on a research through design project (RTD) thatfocuses on a technical communication video of the live-action format. Itinvestigates the usability and design-implications of a live-action how-tovideo, by means of analyzing user-centered data such as YouTube analyticsdata, usability, and comprehension assessments. In the study, four key liveactionvideo affordances are identified: verifiability, comparability, recordability,and visibility. The identification of these affordances when related tothe users’ assessments resulted in several design implementations thatwould warrant sought-for communication efficacies. Findings show thatsome assumed efficacies appear to be mitigated by the complexity andthe density of the video information. One implication of this is that theimplementation of conventional video editing techniques and the additionof on-screen text that serve to make content briefer and more concise intoinstructional live-action videos requires the technical communicator’s carefulconsideration.
